Mike Bailey is one of Victoria’s most experienced painters of fire protective and fire retardant paint.
Mike and his team also specialise in implementing comprehensive fire containment systems and can provide advice and installation of various fire protection accessories including sealants, downlight covers, fire-rated collars, fire-rated access panels, hatches, etc.
More than ever before, we have at our fingertips the technology and knowledge to be able to prevent tragic human death due to our buildings catching fire.
Local councils and other governmental bodies have also realised this and have begun to take action by enforcing higher fire-ratings on all publicly-used commercial and privately-owned buildings in their domain including new, existing and heritage structures.
Councils issue fire safety orders on buildings that they deem to have the most inadequate fire protection between the ceilings, floors and walls that separate the occupancies of multi-unit buildings including nursing homes, apartment buildings and accommodation providers.
The traditional fixes to these fire code hazards include replacing ceilings with fire-rated linings or installing extensive sprinkler systems: both of which are time-consuming and costly renovation options.
Fortunately, there is a safe, non-destructive option to achieve the required fire rating on existing buildings that is cost effective and can be completed in days rather than months: intumescent, fire-rated paint technology.
